35+ Years of Research


Since the 1980s, LearningRx and BrainRx founder Dr. Ken Gibson and his colleagues have helped more than 100,000 clients all around the world with a unique cognitive training methodology designed to strengthen the core skills the brain uses to think and learn.


Dr. Gibson has devoted his entire career to helping children and adults struggling with learning, reading, remembering, paying attention, and more. He began with a visual information processing intervention (improving how the brain creates mental images for better memory and comprehension), but today the program does so much more.

Here’s a little background on the development of the LearningRx and BrainRx procedures:


In the early 1970s, Dr. Ken Gibson, a pediatric optometrist and specialist in visual processing, became fascinated by the question, “How can we help people learn easier and faster?”


Determined to find the answer, Dr. Gibson began compiling experiences with children and adults. In addition to his own practice, he founded preschools and learning centers and worked with children in those settings, too. He also began researching the latest developments in any field or science related to the brain, applying those developments to his growing body of work.


Soon he discovered an interesting pattern. He realized that students were paying attention better and recalling important facts more easily after being coached through short but intense periods of mental exercise. The doctor was intrigued.


Could these results be replicated? Deciding to test his theory on 35 students who were struggling with reading, Dr. Gibson created a three-month program. Unlike any reading remedy that had been attempted before, the program wasn’t based on tutoring or reading instruction; instead, it consisted of mental workouts.

The results were far better than Dr. Gibson had dared hope for.


Eventually, Dr. Gibson compiled a series of specialized exercises that worked on specific cognitive weaknesses. With the help of other educational- and psychological specialists, these brain exercises were tested and refined over an additional 16 years. Ultimately, they became the foundation of the LearningRx (US based) and BrainRx (international) brain training system.


Today LearningRx together with BrainRx is the largest one-on-one brain training company in the world, and a pioneer and leader in the field of cognitive assessments and training.
